2012 (English)In: Economic Essays / [ed] Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, Athens, Greece: Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER), 2012, 147-161 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The public sector is the biggest buyer on all national markets. The focus on public procurement and especially electronic public procurement has for several reasons increased in later years with more choices due to more competition nationally and internationally, rapid technical development which provides competing solutions, buying services instead of building own solutions etc.
Public procurement aims in the same way as the private sector’s purchasing for the best possible outcome in the short and long run. However, public procurement often also aims for achieving certain political goals, which can result in an array of consequences both for the procuring organization as well as for businesses and citizens.
